    We were welcomed as if we are family and treated even better. Service is amazing. Food was outstanding. Claudio and Kristine are both so warm and accommodating. Seeing them with others in the restaurant made it obvious they have developed a wonderful relationship with each of them. Will be back and definitely recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy the best Italian dining experience! Thank you Claudio and Kristine.

    We came to celebrate my Husbands birthday and had a fabuous meal. Everything was so fresh and flavorful. Seabass was melt in your mouth amazing. Reasonable bill for three people with appetizers, bottle of wine, entrees and coffee. Dessert was to die for! Salted Carmel cheese cake and a chocolate cake. Would recommend to anyone looking for fine dining and outstanding service.

    Intimate dining room with good food however it took 45 minutes to order an appetizer! Our dinner was 2.5 hours without coffee and dessert. Our waiter seemed frustrated at times and a bit confused. Willing to give it one more shot though.

    Went once but no more. Price is way too high for what u get. Pricing rivals much better restaurants but the food was so so. Pasta was simply ok at best. Beware of the hidden extra costs and continued upselling by the owner. Asks if you want water and of course you say yes but at 7.00 later on the bill without being told. We only wanted tap water. They ask if you want chicken added to a pasta to which you say sure to a tiny piece of chicken for 12.00. They of course say its organic on the bill to justify the outrageous price for the tiny portion. Highly doubt its organic and frankly i dont want organic. I recommend everyone to ask for pricing on all items ahead of ordering whats not on the menu. 250 dollars for 4 basic pasta dishes and one 40 bottle if wine speaks rip-off. Go elsewhere.

    From the moment that we arrived inside the door, we received great service. With a welcome smile, our reservation was confirmed and our coats were hung up for us and then we were promptly seated. The atmosphere was tastefully decorated in a contemporary Italian style with ample space between tables. Our waiter Christian was very professional and courteous and provided us with prompt and friendly service. The presentation of our food was well done and delicious. The restaurant was very accommodating with regards to dietary preferences. We expressed our gratitude for the enjoyment of our food to the chef when she came to our table to check on things. A great evening out with friends who all agreed that we would come back again and recommend Claudio's to others.

    This was our first time to Claudio’s and we were not disappointed. We went to celebrate Hubble/Dad/PopPop’s birthday. From beginning to end the service was outstanding. Our two grandbabies were at dinner as well and were acknowledged and made to feel like princesses. The food was superb , flavourful , hot and served in a timely fashion. I would have no trouble recommending Claudio’s to others and can’t wait to return. Thanks you for the great service !
